Sign of the Times
Recently I had to spend some time at one of the big medical centers SouthWest of here. Our little town has a hospital but you have to do considerable driving to get to specialists. While I was over there I went into the men's room, and there posted under plexiglass over the mirror was this sign.
I really don't know what to make of it. First off, I hadn't heard we had any problem with slavery here, although I'm sure ConAgra, Fieldale, and our other big chicken business people would be glad if it were brought back. Nor have I heard of women being placed in this particular circumstance. Up here, it would be hard to keep something like that quiet and the churches would be on something of that nature like "a chicken on a June Bug." Trying to set up a brothel in the middle of Southern Baptist country would be the equivalent of chumming up a school of sharks.
All I can think of is that this organization must post these where ever there are large concentrations of Hispanics, and this town I was in meets that criterion. The street signs are in Spanish, the stores are hispanic, the taxis are all hispanic. In 1986 there were no hispanics in that county at all. Today there are over 150,000 they know of.
